2019 Hope for Humanity
Thank you to everyone who so generously supported the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum’s 2019 Hope for Humanity fundraiser! It was wonderful to spend the evening with more than 1,100 of you on December 4th at the Renaissance Dallas Addison Hotel as we lauded Rebecca Enloe Fletcher, whose energy and perseverance as Co-Chair for the Building a Foundation of Hope capital campaign helped us bring the new Museum to fruition.
We are humbled and grateful for the more than $1.1 million you helped raise in support of our mission. John Massey and Florence Shapiro inspired guests to raise an additional $40,000 to provide free transportation, admission, and curriculum support to economically challenged students from Title I schools to visit the Museum. These donations were more than doubled thanks to a generous matching gift of $50,000 from an anonymous donor. Simply incredible – THANK YOU!!
Your investment in our year-round initiatives, whether through this dinner, your membership support or other annual donations, is a worthwhile one, for it is through education that the Museum inspires Upstanders — individuals who speak up and act, especially when the easiest course of action is to do nothing at all. Your contributions directly support our important programming that teaches the history of the Holocaust and advances human rights to combat prejudice, hatred, and indifference. I invite you to click here to learn more about the educational programming you help make possible!
On behalf of the Museum’s Board and staff, we sincerely thank our Dinner Co-Chairs, Barbra and Bud Applebaum & Lee and Paul Michaels; our illustrious Honorary Co-Chairs and Host Committee; and everyone who generously supported this year’s dinner. From Building a Foundation of Hope, to building a city of Upstanders – together, we are making a difference.
With great thanks,
President and CEO
